This book features superheroes but it’s not about them. It’s an original, one-of-a-kind that I can recommend if you’ve even mildly enjoyed a Marvel movie.
It’s a 9/10 for the story. Only a 9 because there are a few drawn-out passages that killed the rhythm for me.
The art by Alex Ross is most definitely a 10/10. Every single panel is a painting. And it’s stunning too. The amount of work that must be required for this, and at this level of detail, is incredible.
The advent of superheroes, through the eyes of a photojournalist. This book is an examination of What happens inside people’s heads as mutants and superpowers become part of their lives. The story follows Phil Sheldon’s life as he goes to WWII, gets married, writes a book, and becomes a mentor, among others.
